Hi Guys and Gals!!
I have been collecting the Hachette Mallard Partwork Magazine for what seems like forever!! I have finally received my final issues and as a result it is time to start building!!
I have got my Great British Locomotives A4 out of storage to act as some inspiration in the background on my workbench:
Having followed the partwork thread since the magazine launched, I had discovered the first thing I needed to do was to strip the paint of the main boiler castings, due to it being so thick! To do this I used some Wilko Paint Stripper:
As you can see this had started to take effect even before I had a chance to take the photo, this was left on for about an hour before being washed off leaving me with some much cleaner castings to start with:
This is as far as I have got but it means tomorrow I can begin the building process, any tips anyone has will be very much appreciated.
Thanks for looking, hope you enjoyed,
